I don't plan on talking much about politics on my blog, mainly because thinking about it too much makes me want to take a shower. But one thing that really grates my cheese is this whole business of campaigning while in office. Take the two current major presidential candidates, for example. Both McCain and Obama are senators, so they are supposed to be representing their respective states in the Senate. Right now, though, they're spending very little time actually doing the job for which their constituents voted them in (and for which taxpayers are paying them). Am I the only one bothered by this?
So a question: Say you're basically phoning it in at work because you're too busy looking for your next job. How long would it be before you'd be fired?
